Hello everyone -- its Kristyn!! I’m so excited to show off my glamorous Snowflake Ornament for The Little Blue House 12 days of Ornaments Extravaganza! I had so much fun playing with all the bling and Shimmerz and I hope you do too!
Let’s get started-
First, you want to paint your paper mache snowflake. I painted mine with regular white craft paint. Let your paint dry or you can use your heat gun to dry it quickly if you just can’t wait.
After your snowflake is nice and dry, apply the Shimmerz paint “Pixie Dust” to your snowflake. I painted it on with a small paintbrush. You will love the sparkle it adds!
Now for the fun part! It’s time to add your Bling! I used the “Gemstone Glue” by Helmar to attach my jewels. It works GREAT! No icky sticky glue globs anywhere to be seen. But it’s important that you only use a little bit at a time. I started with putting a big jewel on all the sides then I used the glue and brushed it on and attached my jewels to the snowflake a section at a time.
Now, look at your masterpiece!! AWW!! But wait, we aren’t done yet!! Now I used a sticker from BoBunny “Bundled Up” winter collection sticker sheet for the center of my snowflake. I backed the sticker with a piece of chipboard and then popped it up with some Helmar Zap Dots to give it some dimension.
I did the back side as well and instead of a sticker I used a picture of my nephew, Kaden, for the center. This way it looks fabulous from both sides!
I hope you enjoyed my ornament today! Stop by the LBH to pick up a paper mache snowflake of your own if you would like to re-create it!

My question is… What was your favorite present you received as a child on Christmas Day?
I have a lot of favorites but if I had to choose, it would have to be when I was 9 years old and Santa brought me my own keyboard! Mom and I played songs together on it all day long! It was so much fun!! J
